The Lyrics

Some were jubiliant the day after the election, while others are still weeping and gnashing their teeth to this day. I, on the other hand, was feeling quite serene and happy, just as I am now.
You should have known your efforts would fail:
Though you claimed that you were mainstream, you were far beyond the pale.
Now you know we don't all listen to celebrities,
And we don't believe the stupid ads you show on our TVs.

And I think we're gonna do all right;
Yeah, even the Democrats.
I'm in my seat reclining
At the Inaugural.

You never cared that all your guides were blind.
To you, we're just flyover states, not your blue-blood kind.
Always raging and despairing, that's the way you live;
Hypocrisies and snide remarks were all you had to give.

But I think we're gonna do all right;
Yeah, your curse is broken now.
My smiling face is shining
At the Inaugural.

Your game is up at last: there won't be a recall.
We've got our lives to live, and we don't need you at all.
You vote for traitors, liars, crooks; we choose our loyal friend.
You can stick that ticket in your ears; it's a vote you can't defend.

And I think we're gonna be all right.
Yeah, your game is over now.
It's all done but the whining
At the Inaugura-a-al!

I think that he will do all right
Yeah, the hurts are over now
Our President is dining
At his Inaugural.

quite good

I think the country would have been "all right" even if we were inaugurating a Democrat (especially considering the Republican majority in the House and Senate), but your first verse is a very good summary of what happened. Well done, Offender.

Two comments. Eleven 555's.

Dangling Chad, Sometimes people vote 555's without saying anything. I've been known to do that myself.

The key word there is "sometimes." You're only the third commenter, however, and this parody is now up to nineteen 555's--eight more than when I pointed out the anomaly. Let's be honest--Offender's stuff reeks of voter fraud.

LOL! Voter fraud! Man I'm giving this a 555 just because you said that! What the hell do you think happened in the last 2 elections? Dangling Chads ( pun intended ) in Florida, Ohio ( which by Red Ants own choice has now been dubbed the dumbest state in the country ( especially after going there a few times )) spent what 2 DAYS getting their $hit straight, when nearly every other state was on time. Either way the election goes, you're still going to lose, just as pointing out Offenders vote counts. PS to Offender- No 555 here, the comments are more important anyway ( and again I DKTOS ).

Actually, I think our election went fairly well considering how angry some of the rhetoric was at the time. I do have to agree, though, with one article I saw which asked why, if Afghanistan and Iraq can tell who voted and who didn't with the help of a little inexpensive purple ink, we can't use the same method in our own elections. It's cheap, it's effective, and it would probably speed things up at the polling stations. ("So you want to vote here, eh? Just hold up your finger then... No, not that finger!")
